errata for a tuesday…

30 Oct

Woke up this morning (for the second time; the first time was at 1am after I fell asleep on the couch a few minutes into Heroes last night) to find a baby guppy in the two gallon tank – there may be more; this one beat fins for the big clump of moss once the […]

Nana and Catherine sharing a hearty laugh, or yawn, or something: People should really know better than to have me take a picture – I’m really, really awful

every day you see one more card

29 Oct

I continue to wait, with a scratch in my throat and lungs full of phlegm. Beyond the crud in my system, the weekend was nice, with Nana and Pap Pap coming down to visit. The timing was rather fortuitious, as Catherine just this week figured out how smiling is supposed to work – really made […]

The best news, however, is that the casts/bandages/stinky, non-removable stuff is gone, replaced with a reasonably unobtrusive nylon wrist brace that I can take off when I want […]

the international language

21 Oct

There are some things that are common across all human cultures on this planet, independent of language, geography or creed. the smile, the power of touch… …and the hilarity inherent in the sound of a well-released fart. This universal fact of human nature manifests very early, too. At about ten weeks of age. Whenever Catherine […]

A teenage symphony to God

14 Oct

I got TWO smiles out of Catherine today…not a bad deal at all; and well worth typing about, despite having six useful fingers and an immobile right wrist! We also crossed the bottle barrier today…I kept the kid while Colleen taught Sunday school this morning, packing some defrosted pumped stuff, just in case. She slept […]
